Does anyone else wake up in the middle of the night with the urge to eat? Whenever I wake up at night and can't sleep again I have to go to the kitchen and eat something or else I'm not able to sleep again. It's not like binge eating but it is compulsive in that I Have to eat or else I just lie in bed chewing my cheeks and lips until they bleed. Is this something that other people get too? Or does anyone else have late night compulsions like this?

      I don’t wake up hungry, but I can’t fall asleep on an empty stomach. I always eat before I go to bed which my family is always admonishing me for.

      Heyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!! I use Red Light Therapy on my phone to help me fall asleep and I use it for 10-20 minutes but no longer than that or else you won’t fall asleep!!!!!!!!!! If you have a iPhone go to settings- search bar up top- search Color filters- tap color filters- turn it on score down and find Color tint and scroll it to the left or right fully intensity it will make it red than go to your brightness and turn it all the way up that way it is fully blasted!!!!! Than you are ready to fall asleep I use it because I have ADHD sleep problem!!!! If you have an Android than you have to download a red light therapy app for it!!!!!!!!!!!! If you need anything else my Instagram is Jesus_christ.our_savior

      Yes! I’m not sure why it happens to me but I wake up in the middle of the night sooo hungry that it feels like I haven’t eaten in days

      Oh good I'm glad to hear it happens to someone else!! I'm also usually craving something sweet, especially ice cream!!

      100% this happens to me! And i usually am craving something sweet when it happens. Which i find weird because i’m not typically a sweets person 🤷🏼‍♀️

      💕I have to have a meal, almost, before I can be at peace enough to sleep..

      I tend to have this happen before bed, and always have. As I’ve gotten older, unfortunately, eating before sleep worsens my insomnia and can wake me up nauseous.

      No I don’t. I’m just hungry when I wake up
